Our people are our centre. They’re curious, agile and hardworking, and instinctively care about the wellbeing of others. If that sounds like you – come and join us!

We’re a small government agency with a big reach across the social system. We take a broad view, looking at issues that New Zealanders face but don’t fit neatly into the work of a single agency. This allows us to get actionable insights to decision-makers, and ensure that real people – whānau and communities – are involved in and benefit from the work we do. Ultimately, we want to achieve sustainable improvements for the wellbeing of New Zealanders.
